Not so long ago, MSI promised an updated BIOS for Ryzen 3000 processors with “more than 100 improvements” – and there is already the first real evidence that the improvements work. At least in that part, which relates to increasing the frequency of the CPU.
According to the source, the BIOS for Asus and ASRock motherboards with the microcode AGESA 18.104.22.168 has already begun to appear on the Web – this is where all the innovations should be implemented. Users have already been able to test its effect in practice using the ASRock Fatal1ty X470 motherboard and Ryzen 7 3800X processor: if with a BIOS based on the AGESA 22.214.171.124ABBA microcode, the maximum frequency when loading all the cores was 4245 MHz, then with a BIOS based on AGESA 1.0. 0.4 the frequency rose to 4325 MHz.
Apparently, AGESA 126.96.36.199 will increase the clock speed of other representatives of the Ryzen 3000 line, but users of other processors do not make much sense to update – most of the improvements are addressed specifically to Ryzen 3000. By the way, this same hundred innovations could not be found on ASRock Fatal1ty X470 – Probably, they will be implemented only in motherboards based on the X570 chipset.
